Loosing Your Personal Style Identity…

I’ve had a bit of a weird day today visiting London Edge I’ll try and blog about it at a later date, but right now I want to have a bit of a ramble. I finally got to meet Perelandra of Pamper and Curves today and she’s inspired my to write this blog after it’s been lurking in my brain for a bit. In Perelandra’s talk today she started by talking about how when she had her first child it changed her body and made her feel like she’s lost her style identity, this is obviously a common thing to happen to women and even though I’m not with child (although someone did ask me if I was recently, LOL) or likely to be anytime soon, I can totally relate to this sentiment.

Revisiting the issue of ‘real women’ and body shaming…

I was not expecting to wake up and see the start of London Fashion Week kick off with a social media storm created by a stupid body shaming campaign.

A plus sized clothing brand has set up a bird watching hut outside London Fashion Week for #SkinnyBirdWatching, in an attempt to point out that the model size 6 is not what ‘real women’ are. What they actually did is create a body shaming campaign which just insults women of all sizes. Would they think that #FatBirdWatching would have been acceptable? No, it’s not, so why is it OK for them to use slim women as a target of ridicule?
